Stimulate the Economy and Your Finances by Starting a Business

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

According to Jonathan Ortmans, president for the Public Forum Institute, a non-partisan organization dedicated to fostering dialogue on important policy issues, entrepreneurship is significant for the individual and for the economy. “Entrepreneurs play as catalysts for creating new industries, businesses and jobs,” says Ortmans. “They are steps to foster a culture where entrepreneurship is publicly appreciated and celebrated.”

SC State University’s Small Business Development Center wants to continue this culture by hosting another education and training seminar on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the third floor development room of Belcher Hall, located on the SC State campus.

Economic development consultants Sylvia Dunning and Pamela Free will assist you in determining if entrepreneurship is right for you. During the seminar, you will learn your business structure, how to research your start up costs and how to discover your credit history. Start living your dream now and start your own business.
